Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe today delivered the Economic Policy Statement in Parliament and clarified the current status of Sri Lanka’s economy and the way forward for his government and the people.
He stated that the challenge faced today is to sustain what they have built, and strengthening the economy.
He stated that this task has two prongs. The first is to stabilise the economy creating a country free of debt for our future generations. The second is to expand the economy giving all Sri Lankans the chance for prosperity.
“We have relied on the public sector for too long ignoring the private sector. We have scared away private investments with unclear policies and complicated procedures for too long,” he said.
